Eavesdropper's report: Booland Radio Medley

MG, while drawing on her homework packet, segueing directly from one song to the next:

"Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things. When the dog bites, when the bee stings...

"Mick-ey mouse club! Mick-ey mouse club! Who's the leader of the club that's made for you and me? M-I-C-K-E-Y, M-O-U-S-E!...

"No life! Without wife! Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah, No life! Without wife! Whoa whoa whoa whoa, Whoa whoa whoa whoa! I just want a man who's good and smart, a really [unintelligable] and a really big heart....

"Ohhhh, the buzzin' of the bees, in the cigarette trees, and the soda waaater fountain, the lemonade springs where the bluebird sings, in the big rock caaaandy mountain! In the big rock candy mountain, you never change your socks ([aside to herself:] That probably means they stink!), and little streams of alyhol come tricklin' on down the rocks..."

All those tricklin' streams must have triggered something, because now she's in the bathroom.

Bwahahahaha! Is that "no life without wife" from Bride and Prejudice? I'm dying here.

Oh yes, it certainly is!
One of our favourite movies, which MG watched more or less in a continous loop last fall.
